VIRGINIA WATER, England (AP) — Robert Karlsson shot a 2-under 70 in windy conditions to take a four-stroke lead after the third round of the BMW PGA Championship on Saturday.

Karlsson was tied for second four shots behind Paul McGinley overnight, but finished the third round leading Miguel-Angel Jimenez (72) and Oliver Wilson (73) by four shots.

McGinley, who shot a record 65-66 over the first 36 holes, finished with 79 to drop to a share of fourth place with Jyoti Randhawa (69) and Daniel Vancsik (72). They are five strokes behind Karlsson.

Rain and wind are scheduled for Sunday's final round over the West Course at Wentworth.
